9 ways to get climate-smart agriculture to more people
Understanding which agricultural practices work best, and where, to halt the impacts of climate change is one thing. But making sure those practices are adopted by communities – farmers, decision and policy makers – is another thing.
The process of getting better practices to more people – “scaling up” innovations to make agriculture more climate-smart – has baffled many development practitioners. Some approaches work on a small scale, but suddenly on a larger scale, everything changes.
These are the challenges that the authors of these 9 briefs just published set out to address. The briefs document successful lessons which apply even on a wider scale, to scale-up successful agricultural practices to tackle climate change across Africa.
